This company made a Cybertruck-inspired travel trailer that could run off-grid forever

Promising unlimited solar power and clean drinking water, it's unlike any RV on the market today.

Few things get the current zeitgeist talking like Elon Musk’s Tesla Cybertruck and anything even tangentially related to it. Now, specialty luxury RV manufacturer Living Vehicle wants to add to the hysteria conversation with news of a revolutionary concept travel trailer that’s unlike anything on the market. The bleeding-edge CyberTrailer is purpose-built to pair with the Tesla Cybertruck and allow campers to untether from the grid forever.

With few official details beyond a dozen high-level bullet points on the company’s website, Living Vehicle is doing its best to get RV enthusiasts talking by imagining what the future CyberTrailer could be. At first glance, the ultra-modern RV’s roots are clear. The asymmetrical silhouette and sharp, angular aesthetic are unmistakably ripped straight from the Cybertruck’s original design sketches. It’s sleek, muscular, and a clear departure from, well, every other travel trailer on the road.

But, beyond the next-gen design, what sets the CyberTrailer apart is its serious off-grid capability. According to Living Vehicle, buyers can “say goodbye to RV parks forever” with “freedom from utility connections.” In practical terms, it’s built to be 100% solar-powered, thanks to roof-mounted panels and a second, horseshoe-shaped array of panels that wrap around the sides and rear. In theory, this could provide enough juice to run all of the trailer’s onboard tech components and appliances indefinitely wherever you can find abundant sunshine. According to LV, the solar setup will be beefy enough to power almost any electric tow vehicle, whether that’s a Cybertruck, a Rivian, or a Ford F150 Lightning. The company confirms the CyberTrailer will play nice with traditional gas and diesel-powered vehicles too.

Even cooler, though, is the promise of “unlimited water from air creation & recycling.” In simplest terms, this should work like a high-capacity dehumidifier, drawing moisture from the ambient air, filtering it, and converting it to clean, potable water that fills the trailer’s freshwater tank. In theory, it could do this indefinitely or for as long as the trailer has the power to run the recycling system.

As for additional amenities and conveniences, we anticipate the CyberTrailer being as luxurious and high-tech as Living Vehicle’s current production model travel trailers, including the HD24 and HD30. Marine-grade construction, residential fixtures, high-end RV (or full-size) appliances, and tech-forward everything are all but guaranteed. Among the few official details, the company confirms complete wireless control via Apple iPad and even a folding patio and gear hauler ramp.

The latest details for purchasing your own CyberTrailer are thin. Officially, Living Vehicle claims a starting price of $175,000, and deliveries are expected to start in 2025. A fully refundable $100 deposit puts your name on the waitlist. Given the vagueness surrounding this prototype, though, we’re a bit skeptical as to whether or not this is just a Cybertruck-related PR stunt. Either way, it’s guaranteed to get people talking.

optimized overlanding gullwing pop up camper opened

Living the van life seems like the ultimate way to RV, with everything you need for life on the road neatly packed into a single, driveable vehicle. But most off-the-rack and even custom vans aren't designed for serious off-road exploration. If you're more of an intrepid traveler who likes to venture far, far from civilization, you need a rig that's tough enough to go anywhere. Enter Optimized Overlanding's all-new pop-up camper, a purpose-built RV that's rugged, capable, and full-featured enough for hardcore off-grid trips.

The interior gets plenty of natural light
The biggest selling point of this unique RV (beyond the surprisingly affordable price) is its configuration. Optimized chose to separate the kitchen and utilities on opposite sides behind gullwing doors. This helps to drastically cut down on setup and breakdown times. The company promises that this overland trailer goes from open to closed in just two minutes, as demonstrated in this video:

For some reason, electric vehicles are still polarizing (pun intended) for many consumers. Make no mistake, though, EVs are the way of the future, and not just for cars, trucks, and SUVs, but for recreational vehicles, too. California-based Pebble just announced presales for its all-new, high-tech Flow travel trailer with a revolutionary design that hints at some very good things to come for future RV owners.

Travel trailers aren't typically powered, so the idea of calling one an "electric vehicle" might seem strange. But it's clear the Flow is no ordinary travel trailer. At its core is a next-generation electrical system with universal charging and a hefty rooftop-mounted solar array. All of that tech powers a dual-motor active propulsion assist system, which helps to propel the Flow down the road electrically. With an advanced streamlined design (which the company claims is 300% more aerodynamic than even the lightest travel trailers), it also helps to reduce drag on the tow vehicle and improve fuel economy.

Winnebago’s new Access travel trailer is insanely cheap yet surprisingly full-featured
Solar power, built-in WiFi, and plenty of cargo space for your favorite outdoor gear — all for under $30K

RV’ing, like scuba diving, playing paintball, and climbing Mount Everest, can be an expensive pastime. The largest and most luxurious motorhomes are often more expensive than a modest, two-bedroom house. But even midsize touring coaches and lightweight travel trailers can be pricey too. Winnebago is looking to change the game to provide more folks without a six-figure spending account “access” to their own recreational vehicle.

The aptly named Access is Winnebago’s answer to the often over-priced RV market. It’s an affordable, entry-level travel trailer that doesn’t scrimp on features and amenities. Despite its sub-$30K price tag, it’ll be roomy enough to sleep up to eight passengers. The exact layout is up to you, but the company has confirmed a good mix of floor plans, including a fully enclosed bedroom with a queen-sized bed at either the front or rear. Mixed-use sofa and dinette areas will provide additional sleeping space for children or guests.
